Ready to embrace the spice? McDonald’s Spicy Chicken McNuggets are a reality.

The Golden Arches will feel the heat soon. McDonald’s Spicy Chicken McNuggets are one of several new menu items coming to the iconic fast food brand. These new spicy chicken nuggets could be the flavor boost that you are craving. Ready to take a taste test?

While McDonald’s and other fast food brands were built on the iconic hamburger, it seems that the companies are turning to chicken to entice customers to come back time and again. From the chicken sandwich wars to chicken nuggets, guests are looking for menu options at their quick service restaurants.

In a recent announcement, McDonald’s is adding a couple of new menu items starting on September 16. The limited time menu items include Spicy Chicken McNuggets, Mighty Hot Sauce and Chips Ahoy! McFlurry.

According to McDonald’s, the new Spicy Chicken McNuggets have several innovative aspects. First, the coating is a tempura batter. This difference should make for a lighter, crispier coating.

Second, the spicy seasoning is a combination of cayenne and chili peppers. While this combination might seem bold, the seasoning should be approachable. These peppers do bring the heat, but not at an extreme level.

The new McDonald’s Spicy Chicken McNuggets are the first new flavors since the McNuggets launched in 1983. While McDonald’s has offered other chicken menu items (sandwiches, tenders, etc), this flavor innovation is a first for the McNuggets.

Additionally, the Spicy McNuggets will be offered with a Mighty Hot Sauce. This sauce is described as a blend of crushed red pepper and spicy chilis. Additionally, there is a touch of savory garlic and “hint” of sweetness.

Looking at this sauce, it seems to be a combination of flavors. It is not a Buffalo sauce, spicy Asian sauce or a traditional hot sauce. That “hint” of sweetness keeps it balanced and makes it more agreeable to a wider audience.

While the Mighty Hot Sauce will be served with the Spicy Chicken McNuggets, it will be interesting to see if you could get this sauce for other chicken sandwiches, a burger or even French fries. This sauce could be a tasty flavor experience for McDonald’s French Fries.

The new limited time menu items will be available starting on September 16. It is uncertain how long these items will be on the menu. If you want to get a taste, you better hurry before they are gone.
